An intelligent, articulate scholar, Harrison MacWhite, survives a hostile Senate confirmation hearing at the hands of conservatives to become ambassador to Sarkan, a southeast Asian country where civil war threatens a tense peace. Despite his knowledge, once he's there, MacWhite sees only a dichotomy between the U.S. and Communism. He can't accept that anti-American sentiment might be a longing for self-determination and nationalism. So, he breaks from his friend Deong, a local opposition leader, ignores a foreman's advice about slowing the building of a road, and tries to muscle ahead. What price must the country and his friends pay for him to get some sense?

I love how passionate Harry Belafonte is about his activism in human rights - and he surely continue to inspire us and other entertainers. Really glad I get to know him because of this film, such a courageous human being. So many great quotes that I could get from this film. The most important thing that I get from watching this is we have to stick up to our ideals, no matter how hard the circumstances are. Watched this film from the 55th BFI London Film Festival.
